The fictional character of Mr. Raymond is a great embodiment of the mental state of the silent few in America that knew that Jim Crow was wrong, but didn’t have the means or willpower to end it. Those people wanted to stop such perverse acts from occurring, but could not, due to the fear of social
It wouldn’t matter for a newchild’s toy. But later it does matter, doesn’t it? We don’t dare to let people make choices of their own.” (Document E) Basically the book is saying that the members of the community don’t even know that their choice.

He claimed that the book was against religion as an Islam itself. A similar of the same happened in India, the country Salman Rushdie was born in, the book’s sale and possession was banned as a small minority of Muslims claimed that it hurt their sentiments, and that the government not taking any action against it was going against it Secular policy, thus a religion influenced the operation of a government and its laws, this is precisely why a global charter should be made, in order segregate the two and prevent one disruption the efficient operation of the other.

Malala is unfortunate to have experienced what she has first hand, but that builds her credibility and also her purpose she’s conveyed throughout her life. To begin with Malala is from Swat in Pakistan, which is a patriotic society women are degraded to the point where

They justified this because it made it so that no one would be better than any other person. They valued equality over individuality. In Fahrenheit 451 the government restricts the ownership and reading of books.
John Cage's reaction to the existence of the traditional canon of musical masterworks was the creation of a musical score that made people question what it means to make music and what music is. In Cage's piece "4:33" he created a musical score that was three movements of tacets which illustrated the blurred line between art and life (Lecture 2/1). Besides going against all of the boundaries that the traditional canon has, this piece also shows how audience members coughing, shifting in their seats, and breathing are the sounds of life, and that in itself, is music (Cage 46). Cage believed that "masterpieces [were] the opposite of life" and that the musical museum was doing the same thing that a refrigerator does to milk, preserving its liveliness so much, that it is no longer alive (Cage 44-46). Similarly, Copeland also critiqued the traditional canon but through making his music relevant to the time.

Domat believed that it was vital for a country to have a government or someone in charge in order to have stability in the country, that is how he justifies his need of giving certain people (e.g. Kings) authority over others. He stated that “since all people do not do their duty and some…commit injustices, for the sake of keeping order… all enterprises against this order must be repressed: which was possible only through authority given to some over others, and which made government necessary”. This shows that Domat believed that it was essential to give some people authority over others in order to run a country smoothly, otherwise, if there was no one at the top governing the people then people
They were not loyal to a party or a country or an idea, they were loyal to one another.” My textual evidence to support my claim is this; “The workers are human beings,” he said aloud. “We are not human” (Smith 165). It seems that Winston knows that his world is dystopian, but he accepts it how it is, because he realizes that he can’t do anything about it. This compares to modern American society very well because the individuals in this world know that something is wrong with it, but it involves a higher power than them, so they can’t change it. They know that what 2081’s government is doing is wrong, but they can’t really do anything about it because these individuals are just normal citizens and the government doesn’t care what citizens of society want anyway, so what’s the
